Climbs at this crag
While the crag is best viewed from the hamlet of Chapel-le-Dale, the logical access from there and Raven Scar to the south is barred by a continuous wall, masses of karst limestone paving and, after wet weather, the quagmire of Tatham Wife Moss.
A65 to Ingleton. Take the B6255 towards Hawes. Just after leaving Ingleton and having passed by a milestone a distinct bridleway (Fell Lane)is visible on the right - limited parking. Hike up the bridleway towards Ingleborough. After passing sheep shelters on your left, leave the bridleway and head northwards traversing around the mountain on roughly the 500m contour, the occasional faint lines made by cavers can be followed here. A wide shallow westward facing gully should now be visible on the right. After 800m, a more distinct northwest facing gully with a series of easy looking steps becomes visible and leads into the heart of the broken sprawl of Black Shiver. This is Black Shiver Gully (Grade I/II).
